To ensure that our aerospace composite structures and space-based solar power systems are of the highest quality, Alliance Spacesystems oversees all aspects of end-item and materials testing. Whether the testing is done onsite or off, we manage the entire process. This includes developing detailed test procedures as well as providing the test engineer and test fixture and frame.
Alliance Spacesystems currently performs many end-item tests in-house. Regardless of the test type, we work closely with our customers to develop the plans and procedures required to execute a successful test program. In addition, we oversee fixture design and fabrication.
Sinusoidal Vibration(Sine Vibe/Sine Burst/Random Vibe)*
Thermo-elastic Distortion Testing/Photogrammetry*
Thermal Vacuum Cycling/Bakeout*
Alliance Spacesystems has an in-house test lab for both work in process (WIP) and material allowables (B-basis) testing. Testing programs are performed in accordance with our customers’ requirements, the engineering test plan, industry standards (including ASTM) and manufacturer recommendations. Among the materials testing programs we oversee at our world-class San Diego facilities are:
Short beam shear
Four point bend
Joint testing (ASTM and custom configurations)
